REVIEWS:

“We loved Charlie and the Chocolate factory here. Great place, splendid atmosphere. Excellent performance. A must visit as a family when in Sydney. this is a traditional, but very well cared for theatre. Unfortunately, we’re not staying here, so should take a long trip for our next visit. But totally worth it.” -Upasana Mukerjhee
